About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve worked on creative projects.  From writing stories and illustrating them as a child, to making clothing for my Barbies, I found joy in making things.  The projects changed from coloring to friendship bracelets to braided ribbon barrettes (I was a child of the 80’s!).

barrettes

Remember these?

I focused on art in high school and volunteered for set design/creation for the school musicals.  Once I arrived at Drexel University to study Fashion Design, I discovered the key to creativity.   We were encouraged to design anything we wanted – as long as we could figure out a way to execute it.  This approach fostered a creative approach paired with practical application.

Project from Drexel in 1995:  Transform cotton gingham into an evening gown

In my life now, I try to incorporate as much creativity as possible.  I try to look at most things through an artful lens – food, crafts, photography, home decor.  I started this blog to share some of my ideas and hopefully show that everyone has the capacity to be creative – you just have to open yourself to trial and error.
